3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a 12. Color is a orangish amber. Aroma is definitely pumpkin pie spice like. Flavor is sweet and tart, almost like a lemony pumpkin. The spices are there but they are almost completely overtaken by the tartness in the flavor but not in the aroma.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden brown on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma is pumpkin spice up front, hint of the cranberry tartness on the back end, sweet malt middle. Taste follows, just a nice blend of the spice and faint fruity tartness. Could be way worse, but a nice change from the typical pumpkin beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle - To say I’m disappointed in this beer would be pretty accurate. I’m always down for a new spiced/pumpkin beer for Fall, but this one seemed pedestrian. Aroma is kept under tight wraps with light cinnamon/nutmeg/clove combo. Flavors of clove, allspice, some light cranberry essence with a thin palate and slightly astringent. Almost overly-attenuated to the point where I’m looking for just a hint of sweetness to help support the spices used. It finishes crisp, but falls short of being something truly outstanding. Another beer that falls flat from New Belgium.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper color. Thin head. Smells like Fat Tire, with ginger and nutmeg. Tastes like that too, and cinnamon and allspice. The pumpkin in the flavor actually tastes like real pumpkin rather than artificial. Still not my kind of thing but not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma seems like a macro with adjunct malt, pumpkin, and spices. The appearance is amber with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma and cardboard like. The palate is smooth. Overall it’s OK.
